Every chance I get I use Paris as a theme.
This month Altered Pages is partnering with DecoArt... I love working with the products they sent. Clean up is very easy with soap and water!!!  Please visit each day to what the team creates all month long!
When I saw the Altered Pages Vintage Bicycles Collage Sheet images I thought of the Stencil I got from DecoArt that had PARIS on it.  Actually the Stencil has many names on it I chose to use just PARIS today!

Today I decided to work on a couple more pages in my board book. Paint board book with gesso, dry.  Paint pages with DecoArt Fluid Acrylics: Primary Yellow, Primary Magenta, Cadmium Red Hue, Antiquing Cream and Interference Gold, dry.  

With Punchinella and  DecoArt Fluid Acrylic Titanium White randomly stencil pages.  Using the Bon Voyage Stencil  and Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint Stencil PARIS on one page.  Apply Altered Pages Vintage Bicycles Collage Sheet with DecoArt Decou-page.  Randomly apply a bit of Gilders Paste Patina.
Distress edge of pages with Black ink.  Apply  Gilding Leafing Foil with Duo - Adhesive

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
